We stayed at the Sunrise Grand Select Arabian Beach from the 25th of Oct. till 30th of Oct. 2012, 85 rooms out of 420 were open ( still soft opening) but yet it was amazing , To start with, the hotel is fabulous one of the best we have ever stayed in and with a little more facilities & services it could be compared with Steigenberger Al Dau Beach in Hurghada, First I would like to thank Mr. Ahmed Faheem (Reception S.V),he was outstanding, did everything he could to ensure we had a great time during our stay at the hotel.
For the food, it was excellent, not a huge variety but tasty, also I would like to thank Mr. Abd El Maboud & Mr. Khaled & the rest of the team on their great job at the beautiful Italian Restaurant located on the beach, Also Mr. Ismail at the main restaurant who used to call my daughters Doctor & Engineer, Ehab & team of waiters on the pool bar. There are a number of pools at the hotel but not all in operation yet, the sun beds are very comfortable also there are two water slides which my daughters enjoyed.
There was also a good animation team led by the excellent Sokar. For the Rooms not a fault, about 85% are Sea view, we were at # 1224 & 1225. We also used the gym which is kitted out with all new equipments and had a small sauna, small steam room and hot tub for the time being which is not very good but the main Spa is still not operating.
There is also a beautiful private jetty which is lit up on a night and over a beautiful coral reef.Snorkling is recommended.
Here Are Some Negatives from my point of view, 1-we went to have our room which was still occupied by a guest(I think it will be the first & the last time)-2-Golf cars are not enough need a bus to the beach every 10 Min.-3- the pool bar is under the ground level ,very hot ,need more staff to supply the pool area.-4 mmmm water by glass mmmmm -5 Pepsi is not canned -6-ice cream is great but from 3:5 only.-7- no meat or chicken main dishes for lunch on the beach bar.
8-Turkish cafe is not in the A I -9- no station for hot drinks in the main restaurant.
A word to the management:
With spending few Egyptian pounds this property I think will be ranked from the best 5 hotels in Sharm El-Sheikh.
The Staff is doing their best but still not enough need more staff (all areas).
Sorry for the negatives but I really like this place & wish it to be improved.
All in all it was a great stay and we would not hesitate to recommend it.
